Footage has captured a football coach going crazy after his young nephew scores a free kick curler David Beckham would have been proud of.

Andrew McGhie can be heard repeatedly screaming “Logan!” after the ball arcs beautifully around the wall and into the top left of the goal.

Andrew then films Logan Dunsmore, 14, celebrating on the pitch with his pals before turning the camera on the delighted parents on the touchline.

The clip was filmed in Inverness as Andrew’s team, Kinmylies United, took on Raigmore United.

The video opens with the under-17s game delicately poised at 1-1 and just a few minutes remaining.

Logan, the team’s left-footed captain, is standing over the ball as his uncle can be heard urging: “Keeper’s top right, keeper’s top right.”

And as the youngster lets fly, the ball appears to be heading just wide of the post, only for it to curl back inside – and land exactly where Andrew had told him, in the top corner.

As his master plan comes off, Andrew can be heard screaming on the touchline, and shouting “Logan, Logan”, before spinning round to look at rows of gobsmacked parents, clapping and smiling.

Andrew, nicknamed McGhienio by his team after the Brazilian footballer Ronaldinho, said: “What a screamer, not only a worldie, but the timing was awesome.

“The game was poised at 1-1 with eight minutes to go and we had just saved a penalty ten minutes previously, hence my crazy reaction.

“Cometh the hour. Cometh the man!!! It was a ‘worldie’ of a freekick and one that Bale or Messi would happily have on their Greatest Goals DVD in years to come.”

The video has now been posted on several football Facebook pages, and has received praise from hundreds of fans.

Xav Carter said: “What a hit that is, Becks would be proud.”

Richard Cursis wrote: “This is a strike.”

Whilst Michael Coiley added: “Jesus Christ what a hit.”

The future of Scottish football looks bright, as just weeks ago a Perth under 9s team were compared to Barcelona after they scored a stunning team goal, involving several slick passes.
